Should you provide him the thread links so he can better decide what he wants to miss?

i didn't put him on ignore because he ticked me off. it was his constant posting of half page quotes with nothing to say but stupid sig lines and icons. i got tired of it. so now i don't see it. if he comes up with something profound i'm sure i'll see it. also need more pictures.

I'll make sure to quote everything he says then, just to make sure you won't miss anything...

I am curious though, is the helmet a legal requirement down there? And why place the headlights so far back they're impeded by the open wheels? Seems like they're there just to make it legal for the road, not to allow someone to drive it at night.

What's up with the seat on the black bike? Looks like a hazard in itself.

Our plant manager in Scotland had one.
I got to drive it.
Twice.
(He really wasn't that bright)
HOLY CRAP.
HOLY HOLY HOLY CRAP.
I've driven faster drag cars, but I've never driven something that just had the holy F'N CRAP THAT IS AWESOME factor.
And that was the older slower one. I can't imagine the insanity of having top speed with it now.
As for helmet, I think it might be required, there is NO windshield at all.
Although apparently you can add a windshield now, which is weird. Since it still probably wouldn't have body panels?
